A FREE Mobile App for your Community

distrx is a free location-aware mobile app designed specifically for Main Street communities. As mobile users enter your district, they receive a welcome greeting, and the app opens to reveal everything a visitor wants to know about your community: area events, parking locations, local attractions, map, and a business directory by category. Best of all, when the same visitor travels to another Main Street community, the same mobile app transforms to become the app for that community. There is no cost to your Main Street and local businesses to participate. Merchants create comprehensive business listings and promotional offers, including in-app and web page listings - all at no cost to the business.

Walking Tours and Apptivities

Your mobile app includes all of the listed features at no cost to your Main Street. For a modest fee per stop, you can create engaging Walking Tours, which include scrollable images and descriptions, as well as audio narration. As participants approach each stop, the content appears on participants’ mobile devices automatically.

Your app can also power app-based scavenger, treasure hunts and other themed contests and games. These Apptivity™ events drive traffic to your merchants in search of clues to unlock prizes, require contestants to answer questions or perform actions, making them participants in your community. As with Walking Tours, a per stop setup fee is required.


We are thrilled to offer merchants in our Main Street districts the opportunity to participate in this exciting new technology.  Now our small local businesses can welcome customers with personalized greetings and promotions and be part of a nationwide listing.
